South Florida businessmen buy two iconic Asheville buildings-attachment0

A Miami Beach, Fla., gynecologist and his business partners — doing business as MRK Patton, LLC and MRK Broadway LLC — have purchased the former S&W Cafeteria building and the former Windsor Hotel recently, according to papers filed with the state of North Carolina Secretary of State and the Buncombe County Register of Deeds.

The S&W building at 56 Patton Ave., long considered the jewel of Asheville’s Art Deco past, went for $1,963,000. Its previous sale price is listed in 2007 as $2,450,000.

The Windsor Hotel at 34/36 Broadway has a long history and was sold for $885,000. At the height of the market in 2007, the building went for $2,300,000.

The partners are listed in the North Carolina Secretary of State’s database as Dr. Richard A. Krieger and Michael Krieger of Miami Beach, Fla. A call to the listed number has not been returned.

At this point the plans for the buildings are unknown. The Kriegers have a number of other business interests in Florida and Colorado, which include condominiums, yacht sales, and executive air transport.
